Man: - Self Portrait.
Where - 1 Mile away from Tower Bridge, London, UK
I hope you like it.

Canon 5Dmkii, 24-70mm at 38mm, f11, 1/6 sec, ISO 100. Tripod used. .3 Lee ND Graduated filter.
2 Days into my new job in London I decided to get in super early to see if I could catch some early mist by Tower Bridge.
I eventually found a favourable spot and got dressed into my outfit. As it was 4am there were only a few runners giving me puzzled looks. After a couple of hours trying various poses, dodging rain showers and the odd comment or two an American chap scared the life out of me when he tapped me on the leg and asked "hey buddy, are you OK?".
Difficult one that, as I was standing on a wall with a 40ft drop the other side dressed in a business suit with a Bowler Hat and Umbrella.
All I could say was "urm, I think so".

This shot is also available from a photobook collection called 'All Business' by redtree.me

I'm homesick for London at the moment, and this is so very lovely. Thank you.

Fantastic image - the depth created by the contrast between the stark black in the foreground and the misty distant backdrop, plus the perfect asymmetry and dynamic of the composition!

And a fortunately funny story to go with the picture... "oh no, he's not going to jump, is he?" ... The bowler hat-wearing umbrella-carrying London businessman drowning himself in the river Thames after a stock exchange crash surely must have been part of at least half a dozen novels or movies. :-)
